    This thread is blown out of proportion. This is a clear signal to IMG’s/FMG’s to not apply here. Some IMG IM programs do the same thing (ex. Easton Hospital says 235+ step 1 and usmle only to ward off DO’s AND USMD’s with the assumption that if you even did have a score that high you wouldn’t want to go there anyways).

      Forgive my ignorance- don’t most DO students take both COMLEX and USMLE? If that’s the case, then wouldn’t this 250 step 1 cutoff hurt the DO students as well?

      And, after 2020, will *all* DO students have to take step 1? Something I haven’t really understood.

        Exactly. This is the first time I ever heard of Campbell and I’ve been in medicine for a long time. It is a nonissue for USMD’s because most are not aware of Campbell.

          Nah if you’re over the COMLEX cutoff they’ll look at you. We had an EM program director of a former AOA program that converted to ACGMe talk to our EM club. They said bc of the merger they have a 500 COMLEX and 230 usmle cutoff. But he said as long as you’re over the COMLEX cutoff you’re good.

            Ah I see. Then, in their announcement, they should probably make clear that it’s a COMLEX 420 *or* step 1 250– currently it says “and,” which would imply that the DOs who had taken step 1 would be disqualified by a score < 250, which would defeat the entire purpose of this effort.
